Conteh calls in
Faversham GC handed over a cheque for more than £8,000 to local charity, the Fynvola Foundation, at the club’s presentation evening. More than 100 members and guests attended the annual event at Belmont Road. The club’s captains presented the cheque to the charity, which helps provide nursing and palliative care to people with learning disabilities. The following Friday, former WBC light heavyweight champion John Conteh was guest of honour at the club. The 66-year-old played a round with three members who bid to play with him and the president was his caddy. Sixty people attended the black tie evening event. Conteh was guest speaker, where he told anecdotes about his career. A raffle was held to win a signed pair of boxing gloves.
